In an ironic and hilarious turn of events, political thespians on Capitol Hill are discussing the setting up of a truth commission to probe law-breakers in the Bush-Cheney administration...as long as Bush and Cheney are kept safe.
"Truth" commissions, like the Warren Commission set up to obfuscate the assassination of Pres. John F. Kennedy, tend to find only truths they can hide. And Sen. Arlen Spector, of Warren Commission fame, is on the "truth" case again and making sure that Bush won't be harmed by Sen. Patrick Leahy's grandstanding on behalf of truth, the concept.
